aa address, which wai intended to be

that the eudden and unexpected death

To Mr Comrades an J Friends:
While I seek retirement and peace,
the newspapers take great liberties,
with me as with everybody else. They
have published that my fanily will
Uave St. Louie, becaum we are dis
contented, ea:li paper awigning its
ow n wrnrate reason. There is i. o secret
about it. All my family connections
andsll who hsve a right to be con
oiilled understand the case perfectly.
Fver since the failure of the Harrisou
Wire Comvuay, at St. Louis, which in-
I my Bon-in-Imr, Uapt. iT-cu,
and which hs resulted m me re
moval tf his family to 1'ittBbiirg,
wo have been disturbed. Three
of my children and seven
grandchildren are cow away
from home, and there remain to us
only three. Of these the youngest son,
nineteen years old, on whom the fam
ily must soon depend, will graduate
at St. Louis University in Jane, 1HHU,
wants to go to Yale College, and I
want him to receive the beft possible
educat'oa. He ia goiugto New Haven
in September, and it will probablv re
sult in the few of us left going to New
York fo be near him. I ah all, how
ever, retain all the property I possew
in St. Louis (not much, to be sure),
but all that 1 have to leave the family
when I am laid in Bel'e'onta'ne Ceme
tery. 1 am perfectly content with my
neighbors and friends of St. Louts, to
whom I am very much attached, and
who have done til ihey possibly can
to make our stay with them agreeable.
The Fry matter is equally simplewhen
viewed ariuht. Last summer, after
Gen. Grant's funeral, which I attend
ed, while traveling between New York,
St. Louis, Minnetonka nod Chiciwo, I
was collecting matter for the tribute
of respect I, at president, wB request
ed to make to the memory of Gen.
Grant, our tint commander, before the
Society of the Army of Tennessee,
at our meeting at Chicago of
(September ilth and 10th. That address
was universally noted, copied in a 1
the Journals of tbe day, and was the
result of that correspondence. The
special quotation of Gen. Fry in the
December number ol the North Ameri-
can Review was not made from that
public address, but from one of two
private letters of inquiry addressed
to Ool. Robert X. Scott, who had been
on Gen. llaoeoclc's stun and ia now in
charge of the war records at Washing
ton, of whom all army o Ulcers make
frequent inquiries for scraps of infor
mation. Col. tviott is a peraonal friend
whom I have known from boyhood,
and his I it her before him in San Fran
cisco, and I wrote to him with the
same conlldenue I would to my own
brother about family matters. 1 keep
no copies of such letters and write
mine nastily, carelessly, and it was
only January 2!Ub, two months after,
that I obtaiued from Col. Scott a copy
cf the correspondence from which Fry
had made his quotation, ihis corre
spondence presetti the whole story
better than 1 can state it anew.
Aa soon aa Geh. Fry's article
apieared, Gen. Grant's friends
called my attention to it, and
my letter hook or memory retaining
no expression of opinion so positive
a that nsed, I naturally requested the
editor to accer.'ntii from Gen. Fry the
source ol his quotation that 1 might
explain or asceitain who had revealed
my private lit'.era. Gen. Fry's an
swer was evasive, calling on Gen.
Sherman to deny the words and the
"sentiment" before ho would sub
stantial his statement. 1 again
railed on him and appf n'ed to the
War Department without success,
generally expUiningto correspondents
that 1 thought it impossible I could
linvo used that particular fii-m of ex
pression, nd believed Gen. Fry had n
malicious unlive. I received, too
la 'e, a notice, by a lonndabout way,
from a gentleman of Cincinnati, tbnl
Fry was cunDitigly laying a t-ep to
catch me, and it was not till Janunry
LH.h Hint Cjl. fcott himself lirst re
v aled to me the actual source of the
mischievous paragraph. Detached
anduiedasa ttxt for a sermon, it
was m clear a forgery ss was ever per
petrated. Taking my lit er to Col.
Sco't in its entirety, though mani
festly newr meant for publication, I
contend It is eminently consistent
with my com tint friendship
for Gen. Grant from Shlloh to the day
we deposited his remains in the tomb
at Riverside. The date, September (I.
1S8", is prior to the publication ( f
Grant's "Memoirs," in which, on page
385, he positively records that his po
sition at Corinth in June, 1862, had
become "so unbearable" that be had
resolved to go to the rear aud was dis
suaded by Gen. Sherman ; or, quoting
his own words, "I theu obtained per-!
mission to leave the department, but
Gen. Sherman happened to call on me
aa I waa about stariing aud urged me
so t ongly not to think of going that
1 concluded to remain." Gen. Sher
man, in his "Memoirs" (187r), states
the fame tact, with the further addi
tion that he learned of Gen. Grant's
pnrpoee to go la-k t St. Louis from
lieu, Jlallw. himself, and rode to
Gen. G rat t'.i camp for the very pur
tOM of dissuading him from commit
tiut; this Ift'al mistake. Now, it is a
matter of notoriety tl at from Febru
ary to July, lSiVJ, Gen. Grant was un
der a clov.d, bouuded by the m-wspH
pets aud by a clique cf f-ticer-,
of whom Fry was one,
until, ra he himelf s-ivp, his
poeiti n hecame "unbeatable," and
during a'l lhat time Gen. Sherirnn
ven hisetf a Ifaflt friend, and d'.scoveird
in him thooe pure, unselfish, manly
qualities which aiterward yielded such
precious fruits to our country and
mankind. Can it then be 'wondered
at, a tar twenty four vea', that Gen
Sherman should be a little surprised
that the l.fbitiial libeL-rot Gen.Gra.t
tee h published volume, 18S4, ' The
Arm) Fmler Kuril" should attempt to
assume tlie character ol lirant e pane
gyrist at hie expense'. There is coi a
nieuttir of the Supreme Court, of
C jiigrep?, or any lawyer, who will con
sent to t!:e publication l ins mann-BJ-ipt
w t'iout the privilege pi revis
ing the "oroof. nnc moreover, proves
JUarsliul Gen. Frv knows tin tin Ihe
trial bv court martial of the humblest
urivate soldier, the ttimony of each
viiners is subject to "revihion" before
.beccining a part of tLe record. Yet
he obtained from a confiding friend a
private letter, published it to the
world garbled and makes it a text f or
sermon to Gen. Sherman, and when
politely a iked (or the source cf his
quotation he answers coolly : "Better
let the ae reet where it is." If he
thinks he has achieved a cheap
newspaper victory ci Gen. Sherman,
he ia welcome. The man who got off
with my overcoat may keep It, lor l
have bought a new one. No, my
Mends, I want to direct J our atten
tion to all there lain this tu e "mush
ado about nothing." At the date of
that letter, September oth, there waa
to be a meeting of the Society of the
Army cf the Tennessee at Chicago,
September 10, lH8.r. Geo. Sherman
waa at Lake Minnetoku, and being
summoned by the family of Gen.
Grant at his death, July 23, 1886, went
to Mount McGregor, and remained
there until bis body waa entombed.
August 8, 1885. Compelled to travel
from New York to SL Louis, to Lake
Minaetonka, to Chicago and SL Lou it,
and back again to Chicago for the
army met ting, he was forced to collect
mat trial for his address "on the
wiog." That address waa the reeult
of this correspondence, and it has
been universally copied, and waa ia
the hands of Gen. Fry when he com
posed his paper for the North American
'llrview of December, 18H5. Utterly ig
noring this ' public address,
which wui the conclusion
1 bad reached from the correspondence
and from personal knewledge, Gen.
Fry segregates a single paragraph from
oneot uiaxy priva'e letters if inquiry
to which hs became posset sed wrong
fuilv, and now waiiti to prove to the
world that Gea. Sherman lied, actuu'
ly resorting to police methods of re
ptolucing pbo oraph copies of a para
graph in h letter wnich tie could wen
undent ind Gen. Sherman had forgot
ten, and which, in the aggregate, waa
most eulogistic ot Gen uraut. Any
lawyer or logician reading the whole
of this correspondence, not the gar
bled extracts, will see that on the Oth
of Ssplomber, 1885, my mind was
working out the antithiees to be used
at Chicago, only three days later, be
fore my comrades and friends, all of
them ardent friend3 of Gen. Grant, to
contrast the Grant of Donelsoo Feb
ruary, 1802, and the Grant of Appo
mattox and dead hero of 1885, aa in
terval of twenty-three long, eventful
Gen. Sherman then enters into a
lengthy discussion of bis relations
with Halleck.and publishes a number
of liters from Col. Scott which have
no particular bearing on the case, and
indulges in a long argument, the
greater part of which has been pub
lished heretofore. Altogether, Gen.
Sherman has not done his rase any
good by hii latest publication.

WORKS TO START IT TO
MORROW. A Difference ef Opinion as to the
Final Settlement or the
Chkaoj, III, February 27. Mr.
McCormick said this morning that
the trouble at the harvester works
was practically settled. He had pre
pared the following, which, he sa d,
ktited the position the company had
taken and wonld stand by: "Oar
wt rlu will resume operations on Mon
day morning next. Ia announcing
this we wish to say that we propose
to stand by onr proposition of the
15th instant, on the question of
wages, to such of oar men ai we ran
pat to work -Monday morning. We
shall not be able to furnish employ
ment to all the men who were en
gaged at the time the works were
closed, but will provide for as many
as we can. We hold firmly to our
position taken tbat we have at all
times the right to employ or discharge
whom and ss many aa we please.
"I don't see how we can have any
trouble wben the works open," he
said. "Men who have been here as
sure u tbat at least nine-tenths of our
men are anxious to get to work again,
and we are juntas anxious to nave
thera. We stall set as many of these
to work on Monday as we can. Those
who doa't want to werk will of course
not expect to be employed, and will
have no'hing to do but keep away.
We shall cot try to compel anybody
t) work who don't want to."
About 100 men stood aiound the
vicinity cf the McCormick works this
morning. Some of them claimed that
not over 200, and prot ably not over
fifty, will be on hand to go to work
when the works reopen Monday
morning, and tbu'. there will not be
enough men to start the works. The
more stubborn ones say they will not
go to work under the eyes and clubs
of the police, while those who are
an x '0111 to return to their former situa
tions want police protection. The
Socialists and outsiders are not dis
posed to give up the fight, but all sty
they will return, forgive and f orget,
provided all former employes are re
instated. A number of cars are stand
ing on the tracks. These will bave to
be moved Monday. The switch sen
will bave a meeting to-morrow, wben
they will probably decide wlia"; action
they will take.
A committee of twelve, representing
the Mulders and iron Workers
Unions and Knights of Labor, met to
day, and they debated the situation
for some time, and unanimously
agreed that they would not go to work
Monday, iney claim to represent
nine-tenths of the employes. Thev
say all the molders except five "scabs"
will s'ay out, and don t see how Mc
Cormick is going to run his work 4
without alto running the foundry, and
that the five "scab" men cannoi begin
to do all the work. The committee
also 8 irreed to have a force of men to
"spot" all employes who report for
work betore the dilticnltyis entisfa
Superintendent Averill save the
company are atsured that a sufficient
number ol men are willing to go to
work to enable them to open tin the
shops. They would begin with a few
meu, as is the custom when opening
up altar a dull season shut-down. The
men, be said further, who were
willing to go t) work demanded po
lice protection, and it would be given
them if necessary, but be was not in
favor of having a very lcrgs number
of officers present. Such a courae,
he thought, would tend to create
rather thau prevent trouble. The
men, however, who were willing to go
tcwork wed hsve no fears.

A KOYAL AFFAIR AT THE 4 TONE
OF THE MKAftO.

EJe7 TaeaaM-lToa with ftaar,
alarjr aad Syerrta,
According to promise in my last, I
was "in at the closing" of the season
at Beaver Dam Lake. It waa a royal
i Hair. The crowd was large and good
natured ; the sneechea were well timed
and tparkled with many witty sayings
and good hits; the menu, as gotten
up by the club-keepr, was wholly
original and earned much merriment.
It consisted of empty cartridge shells,
upon which was written the different
courses. For instance, wben we sat
down at the table, shell was handed
ur, upon which was wriften, "Coffee
or tea." Of coime we ail coffetd or
tmd. These ehei's were at once re
moved and snc.t'ier lot rf emp'ies
raaed around. This time ' bread and
butter, any style," was ca'led for. The
third (series riM "barbecued go ore,
stuffed;" the fourth was "teal durk.
broiled ;" the tiftb, "red-head,baked ;"
the sixth, "malis'd pot pie," and -o
on nntil eiery different kind of duck
had been served in every concievabln
style. The table was then chared aad
a large gohlet of si arkling water be
it remembered that nrthing ftronger
is ever drank at the club-house was
p'aced before each perron, fal
lowed by a 'arge No. 8 shell,
in which was insetted a
tine Havana cigar. This waa the sig
nal for SDeecb-mak!n to besin. ami
the chairman proposed the "Health of
the Beaver Dam Club" and called oti
anrominest member ts respond. His
effort was masterly, at the conclusion
of which he was ureetad iri'.h a round
of applause. Thft eeveia' toasts cf
Field Sports vs Medicine." "The In
provement of Our Lake," "T aws for
the Protection of tiame." "The Closed
Season," etc , were all promptly and
eloquently responded to by the sv.
eral gent'emen called upon. "The
Louisville, New Orleans and Texs
Railroad, Its Officers as Our Friends,"
by special request, was renl'ed to bv
the fat man of the party. Hardly had
bis name been called when he assumed
a knowing look, and in his altmrt to
raise to his feet, eracefullv stepped on
a dog's tail, who immed'aMy "gave
tongue" and so startled the f. m. tht
mhiseffo'ttogftoff, hetnrned over his
chair and unset a irlaa of watr in
his neighbor's lap. This created con
siderable merriment, and some un
kind brother ventured to remark that
"it was the first time in his life thaf he
ever eaw water affect one so singular
ly." Quiet being sgn'n restored, the
o-ator snoke in complimentary terms
of the officers of this road and the
great advantage it. was to Memphis;
how smooth wa its road bed anH how
punctual were in tra'ns. and, above
all things, bow exceedingly clever aid
oolite was every man connected wi'h
it to the paiweri'aers in gnneral and the
members of this club in particular.
"In fact, Mr. Chairman, without this
road thera would b ro B. Dam Club,"
was the closinp- sentence of the speak

and the secretary was called upon to

gentleman, but fo fear o! a first-class
suicide his name is withheld.
"Upon this snme trip," continued
the secretary. "I was cruising in the
north end cf lake, and about dinner
time drew up at the causeway. (This
is a crossing made of joining willows
cut down with boards laid on too
and extends f on bank to bank to
serve as a crossing fo the natives.)
My attention was attracted by a poise
on the west bank which reminded me
of a lot o' cowboya herding cattle. I
proceeded to investigate, and headed
my boat in that direction. As I
reared the bank they sang out to me:
Come on, old fellow ; we are having a
picnic and are going to hava soma
milk with it if we can get this Warsed
cow to a'and still long enough.' Think
rf it! The negro bad the poor beast
by the horns, and was feeding her
on biseuiti. snd the lawyer waa pull

doing the milking act in his shell

bucket in the water of the
lake, where it was allowed to re

center, and using our bailing enna for

This broke up the banquet, and s

Ihe Rich Eejoy Relielon an a Lux
ury to Wnich the Poor Are
To the Editera of the Appeal:
It is surprising that a writers-capable
as "Looker On" should be una
ble to define tbe difference between
an nicbangia'ole law and a mistaken
interpretation thereof. I aaid that in
fidels belevfd in nnctangeable, self
existent law, but net that they be
lieved in any Infallible scientific inter
pretation of law. Advanced scientific
discoveries merely prove that tbe pre
viously accepted theories were errone
ous, but an erroneous theory does not
render the law itself mutable.
"Looker On" sska what possible in
fluenced could science Lave had in
civilizing mankind. The introduction
of artificial light and the invect:oa of
the printing press have probably had
more to do with civilisation than all
ether factors combined. The tnst ren
dered social intsreonree possible, the
second wai the great diheerainator of
knowledge, bnt toil the church at
tempted to nullify by the Index F.x
purgatories by which only such books
were allowed to be published as the
church approved. If Christianity did
step into the seething maes of corrup
tion of pagan Rome, they plunged the
world into intellectual darkness for
centuries afterward, and tne light of
the ea. ly church hom the third to the
tenth centuries themselves became ai
corrur. t an the mass they stepped into.
As to Christian missionaries teach
ing a people agriculiuic, it is as natu
ral for a people inhabiting a
fertile plain to live by the tilling cf
tte soil, and toe denizens cf the desert
to remain always a nomadic tribe, aa
it is for a fish to swim or a bird to fly.
Man's occupation aud tempetumf nt
even his susceptibility to advanced
civilzitioa :s due solely to climatic
surroundings. It is safe to. say that
the Caucasian race wold bave attained
tbe hiubtst civilization, whether they
had been Chriitian, Pagan or Infidel.
It aoald be absurd to hold tbat relig
ious belief on the pait of an invent r
prompted the introduction of the
steam engine, the steamship, the use
of elec tricity, etc. As to the church
combating Hocialism, "looker On's"
position is not loand first, because
Christ himselt was a communist, and
the Shekers and the communistic
setti believe themselves to be the true
ex;o3ema of tbe teachings of Ctuist.
As to the grosser dynamic-destructive
communism, "Looker On" must ad
mit that its existence would be unnec
essary in a natural state of society ; it
exists because of injustice to labor, be
cause the tendency is toward the rich
becoming richer and the poor poorer.
The middle class, as Bailey puts it in
his Factor of Civilization, are always
itriving to avoid the misery of the one
and to attain the luxury ol the other.
Now, what classconstitutethe church
goers ; Visit tbem and observe tne
piepondarance of broadcloth over
luetian, of velvet and lace
over calico. Vanderbilt's will
shows his churcbly pioclivities. The
wealth and fashion of a city are the
church-goers', despite the assertion
tbat "it is easiur for a camel to go
through the eye of a needle than tor a
rich man to inherit the kingdom cf
Heaven." And it is this c'ass that is
responsible for communism, and un
lees justice ia done labor, and that
B.oeeriily, a fearful day of reckoning
is at hind when tue church will find
itself powerless to curb and restrain
this evil. It is small wonder tbat the
church opposes communism.
"Looker Oa" has not seen it proved
tbat the church has combated science
or learning. Tj begin with, Mosheim
admits (and it is a hittorical fact) tea
the early Christian fathers held the
idea that all secular learning was per
nicious. Toey held that the Scriptures
contained a'l that was necessary for
man to know, and after the destruc
tion by Christian authority of the
Soiaoloa, that vint store house of
learning, with its 7CO,0OJ volumes,
s-cuUr Ica-niuf; became a'mo t ex
tint t iu two generations, aad it was
centuries before the p'aln astronomi
cal (a its known to the ancients were
nt; tin known. Why was Galileo slain,
after being compelled to abjure the
doctrine cf the movement of the
Why was Bruno bt.rnt at tbe flake?
Because his ecientiiiit discoveries
with tbu interpretation of revelation.
But it is useless to recount all tne in
s'aaces of obstruction to science,
which are so well known to the
raader ot history. .Lven to day we
have the speclacle cf a Wood-
row being persecuted tor bis
belief in evolution because toe the
ory is not in accord with Genesis.
"Looker On" I think makes an er
ror in supposing that the morals cf a
people are improved by their religion ;
on the contrary their religion, I tnink,
is impioved by their morals. Out cf
the idea of bloo iy sacriiioies of ani
mals was evolved tbe one sacrifice of
Christ. Increased knowledge of nat
ural laws, dispelling the superstitious
idea of a multiplicity of godii, the doc
trine of tbe unity of God was promul
gated, and so to-day the Bible doeenot
receive the strictly litsial interprtU-
t oa as ot oio, oecanse it wouiu not
then comport with modern ideas. As
to God's moral law all moral laws
are the result of man's experience.
The first murder comm.t-.ed, aa a
means of self-protection tociety must
pass a law restraining nuirder, or no
one is safe, and so with all enforced
'awi. It needs no revelation to teach
man such laws ot tbe commandment
as are enforced. They have been in
operation from the inception of organ
ized society. The laws of God ( o
Oilled) providing sgtinttatraagegodF,
to., aie not enforced, because their
vio'a'ion r ffera no metace to society.
As for the higher law o! love, the very
acme of Chrisiiaa teaching is the
golden rule, but even this is not origi
nal, since we find the eatsoe beautilul
maxim In the Confucian Analects,
book 5, Kung Yay Ch'a.ng, chap, i, 7.
In conclusion, how Uitle our bot s ed
Christian morality is practically al
uiitted by Christian natioaa. Affairs
are conducted on the theory that all
men are thieves and liara. No man
can enter on cflicial duties, from po
liceman to President, without stultify
ing himself by swearing by his God
to do his p ain duty. Money is loaned
only on bonds, mortgage or indorse
ment. In our ccurte a witness is
sworn by his faith in bis God and re
ligion to tell the truth, and so lit is is
the truth expected that immediately
opposing counsel examine and cioss
examine him to Bee if he be not Ivng.
